. a shocking death. a united states ambassador in libya dead today. the obama administration taking steps now this hour to beef up security at embassies around the world. after this veteran diplomat christopher stevens along with three of his american staffers were murdered by a mob in benghazi, libya. the attack yesterday was apparently triggered by a film, a film produced by an american by the name of sam basil. considered by many to be highly offensive to islam. again, a film. these murders taking place in a country that the united states helped to liberate from the dictator moammar gadhafi and a mob attacked the embassy in cairo, egypt, yesterday. climbing the embassy walls. tearing down and ripping apart the united states flag. it's unclear if the attacks were koord natded or plans to con side with the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks here in america. but moments ago, our president obama spoke out about these killings. >> the united states condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. we're working with the government of libya to secure our diplomats. i've alwa
that the united states had nothing to do with the youtube video that seems to have sparked the violent protests. >> this video is disgusting and reprehensible. it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. but as i said yesterday, there is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence. we condemn the violence that has resulted in the strongest terms. >> egypt is where the latest violence against the u.s. started. egypt may be where the u.s. faces its biggest challenges. you've got angry crowds protesting for a third day over a film that insults islam. now, demonstrates threw mocks and molotov cocktails, pushed through the barbed wire fencing outside the embassy in cairo. police responded by firing tear gas. ian lee is join ugs from the egyptian capital. ian, this is three days with these kind of demonstrations. first of all, do we expect that on friday, a day of prayer, it's going to be much, much bigger and more violent? >> reporter: well, it's definitely going to be a lot bigger. the muslim brotherhood is calling fo
in the globe? >> well, suzanne, this is obviously a tragic day for the united states and for the u.s. foreign service. ambassador stevens and his three colleagues were serving our country in the most honorable way. they were out on the frontlines, and it does demonstrate that we have men and women fro the u.s. foreign service from our state department all over the world defending us every single day and so obviously the first thing we have to say today is our hearts go out to their loved ones and their families. it's a tragic day for all americans because this attack came on september 11th, 11 years after that terrible day in american history. >> nick, how do we answer secretary clinton's question when she took -- takes a look at the diplomatic mission and says, you know, we put so much into libya to turn around to have something like this happen? she clearly is trying to say that there is something that we have done that is worth all of this effort, but when you look at what has happened, how much of that is an insult, is a slap to the u.s. people? >> well, you know, suzanne, i really though
, the global public square. welcome to all of you around the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. we have at important story for you today. start with the proet -- protests. we'll talk to paul wolfowitz and others. next up, michael lewis spent eight months in the white house with unprecedented access to president obama. we'll talk about who obama is and how he makes decisions. also, why is israel trying to get the united states to commit to waging war when israel itself isn't willing to do so. and finally we'll take a look at these pictures. do you think they were taken by nasa or the european space agency? no, a teenager with a second-hand camera. >>> but first here's my take. the images of the american embassy burning in benghazi might have conjured up memories of tehran in 1979, but the analogy is false. in libya, the government is not fomenting anti-americanism. it is fighting it, openly declaring america an ally and friend. libya is pro-american by two to one. the violence there appears to have been the work of small extremist elements that lack much popular support.
, tribal, territorial and international partners and members of this committee. while the united states has made significant progress since the 9/11 attacks, we know threats from terror persist and continually evolve. we faced direct threats from al qaeda. we face growing threats of other foreign-based terrorist groups, which are inspired by al qaeda ideology, such as hq ap and al-shabaab. we must address threats that are homegrown as well as those that originate abroad. is threats are not limited to any one individual, group or ideology and as we have seen taxes employed by terrorists can be as simple as a homemade bomb or as sophisticated as the biologic threat or coordinated cyberattack. while we deal with a number of threats and threat actors at any given time, three areas merit special sustained attention. the first is aviation. christmas day 2000 plot, the october 2010th air cargo thread in the aqa peapod earlier this year would have targeted a u.s. bound airliner with explosives made clear that commercial aviation remains a target. terrace, especially aqap continue to seek ways to ci
. >> warner: the president said the united states would work with the libyan government to track down the perpetrators. >> today, we mourn four more americans who represent the very best of the united states of america. we will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. and make no mistake, justice will be done. >> warner: for now, the pentagon ordered special units of marines to libya called "fast" teams, like this detachment shown training, to reinforce security at diplomatic sites in libya. and from tripoli, the president of libya's national assembly echoed the words of his american counterparts. >> ( translated ): we apologize to the united states of america and to the american people and to the whole world for what happened, and at the same time we expect the rest of the world to help us face these cowardly criminal acts. we refuse to use our country's land as a scene of cowardly reprisals. >> warner: those reprisals came apparently in response to internet clips of a film titled "the innocence of muslims" that crudely defamed the prophet muhamm
. >> i believe mitt romney wants to be president of all of the united states. this week we learned mitt romney wants to be president of half of the united states. if mitt romney were president, he weent waste time worrying about the 47% of americans who he believes are victims, who romney believes are unwilling to take personal responsibility and those are his words, madam president, not mine. he'll only worry about how the other half lives, i guess. that's what mitt romney told a group of wealthy donor at a closed door fundraiser in florida a month or so ago. but it turns out it wasn't closed. someone videotaped every word he said to his wealthy donors. but this is among other things what he said and this is a quote. "there are 47% who are dependent upon government, who believe that they're victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it." mitt romney said his job as president would not be to, "worry about those people." but half of americans are those people. he went on to sa
respect our common humanity. i have made it clear that the united states had nothing to do with this video. it is an insult to muslims, and everyone. we are the home to muslims worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. host: more headlines following these speeches, "obama talks tough on mideast extremism." "uses addressed to regain the initiative on foreign policy." if you look at the front page of "the washington times" this , the right "the expected campaign advantage on foreign policy suddenly in doubt, the president portrayed the deaths of the americans in libya has inflamed tensions over an anti- islamic movie rather than tensions based on american policy in the middle east." from "the washington times," the headline says "romney, exchange for reform."

the united states in the wake of that antimuslim film. take a look at this map. you can see just how widespread the protests are. even though many have been violent, there were also several peaceful protests in many countries. and the violent protests were actually a lot smaller than some may have expected. now, many americans just really don't understand why these protests are breaking out across the world. joining me in studio now to help break it down, michael han lan, specialist in foreign policy. good morning, michael. thank you for coming in. >> my pleasure. >> i have to say, the first question i have when these protests first started breaking out, seemed to be a very serious situation. then as they continue to go on and be a little bit sporadic, i wonder how much is authentic, related to the film, how much of it is just an excuse to protest america? >> i think it's a great question. it's also very important you emphasize correctly, but in a way a lot of people haven't, these protests are generally small. a number of them are nonviolent. today it's already midday sunday and mos

dangerous country in the world. and the number one threat to the united states is iran acquiring a nuclear weapon. the suggestion by prime minister netanyahu that the united states should set a red line and say in advance that we would use force if iran achieved a certain level of progress in its nuclear effort doesn't make a lot of sense to me. this is a question of war and peace. and both president obama and president bush have tried to say we need to negotiate with iran and have the ability to sanction it and use force if necessary, but you don't want to put yourself into a corner and use force based on actio and a predetermined level as what the iranians do. so i think president obama is right here to resist that. and israel should know that the united states has its back as the president has said and the united states will do what it must do to stop iran. but let the united states make that decision, not some preimposed red line. i think that makes sense for america. >> president obama on " 6/0 minutes" on sunday said this. let's play a clip. >> and it comes to our national security d

to fund programs all over the united states where we wouldn't only improve -- we wouldn't only build things that we need, but improve them. the american society of civil engineers has addressed this issue, mr. speaker. what they have said, 2.3 trillion of infrastructure maintenance needs to be done. i come from the city of minneapolis and in my city, we had a bridge fall into the mississippi river. maintenance in this country is critical. we have bridges that are old and deteriorating all over this country. we have bridges that are in need of repair, roads as well, and we also have other projects that need to be taken care of, in terms of our grid and wastewater treatment, in terms of all types of important infrastructure. but we have not invested. we are relying on things that our grandparents gave us. we are relying on eisenhower-era infrastructure, because we haven't in our age focused on the needs of the american people to have infrastructure bill. just to talk a little bit more about the american jobs act, it would also extend cutting payroll taxes in half for 98% of businesses.

to send the signal that the united states is your ally or your friend you need us, you want our financial assistance, we need your requirement here to come to our assistance and provide the kind of security we need. we need your cooperation and we need your help but we can't simply on the one hand take our resources and then sit back and allow the inflamed public to overrun our embassies or to put our people in jeopardy. i think it comes back, we have to take care of what we say in this country, putting our troops in greater jeopardy than they already are in the front lines. we treasure free speech but we have to take care also we don't do anything so provocative that's going to put the lives of our young men and women, our diplomats and our military in greater jeopardy than they are, being out on the front lines. >> do we need more marines in places like benghazi? we had none there. >> we may. this depends on the lib yn government. how many marines we send in, is this something that would then provoke another kind of reaction? we need the support of the libyan government, apparently they

. >> reporter: there are important divisions between the united states and libya on the investigation of what exactly happened at the consulate and the safe house that night. the u.n. ambassador susan rice said it appears that the attacks were not premeditated. but that's not what we're hearing here. the president of the libyan national council said not only does it look like they were premeditated, but it may have taken months in the planning. what i can tell you is we saw plenty of evidence of heavy weapons at this safe house. mortars and other kinds of weapons that take a level of expertise to deploy that accurately. we've also seen new cell phone footage of what appears to be libyans removing the body of ambassador christopher stevens from the consulate that night. they don't seem to know who he is. they identify him as a foreigner. they believe that he is alive at the time. they're shouting out whether anybody knows first aid. and the young man who showed us that video says that ambassador stevens was then rushed to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead. >>> in the race for the

night who are supporting president obama. >> i think he has made it hard for the united states to keep israel with this special ally status that it's had because the united states can't be pushed around by anyone. i just think that obama is being very rational and reasonable to a bully right now. >> the president taking the iran threat seriously enough right now or does netanyahu have a point? >> he has built an international coalition. he has succeeded in buildi in i embargo against iran unprecedented. >> mitt romney said things like president obama has "thrown allies like israel under the bus." he also said on "60 minutes" over the weekend that the president made a mistake by not meeting with netanyahu. the next family we met with certainly agrees,ays the president still has time to meet with netanyahu. here is their position on u.s./israeli relations. >> he has a problem on his hands of major, major proportions, he needs some help. i think that president obama has not given him any help. >> michael, you're nodding. >> i agree. the possibility of iran developing nuclear weapons capab
about the afghan government. i think that kabul is likely to hold. i think the united states will remain committed to the security of the afghan state for at least a decade to come. both political parties in the united states are firm o this point. i think that there's an american consensus behind continued advice and support to the afghan government. as long as that happens, the afghans with our help will be able to stand against the taliban. >> woodruff: all right. we will all continue to watch it. john nagl, vali nasr, we thank you both. >> thank you. >> ifill: still to come on the newshour, reshaping the message for the fall campaign; a change of heart for a global warming skeptic; and evidence of fraud in the medicare program. but first, with the other news of the day, here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: authorities in china moved today to curb protests against japan that turned violent over the weekend. the tensions stem from japan's purchase of islands in the east china sea called the senkaku in japan and diaoyu in china disputed islands northeast of taiwan. it's believed the
or police who are serving, who were not part of the taliban but who then turn against the united states? what about that? >> well, that in itself is worrisome. in other words, if the non-taliban afghan security forces are growing anti-american, that means that the line between taliban and afghan security forces can be actually gradually diminishing. also in the eyes of the population, sometimes the way we look at this very clinically that this many are taliban and this many are not may not b apparent to the afghan population who see that the afghan security forces are acting like the way the taliban would act. >> woodruff: this all started, john nagl, about this video, this anti-islam video came out. but is that playing a significant role in what we're now seeing? >> i don't think it's playing a significant role in the attacks we saw over the weekend. it is playing obviously a very significant role in the more broad islamic uprisings against american embassies including in pakistan. i continue to think that pakistan is the root of the problem and the country we should be most concerned
of the united states would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy dancers half american people view themselves as victims entitled to handout and are unwilling to take personal responsibility to their lives it is hard to serve as president for all americans when you disdainfully written you have half the nation." the romney campaign put out this innocuous statement from communications director. "mitt romney wants to help all americans struggling in the obama economy. as the gaffe go of nor made clear all year are he is concerned about the growing number of people who are dependent on the federal government, including the record number of people who are on food stamps, nearly one in six americans in poverty and the 23 million americans who are struggling to find work. pir's plan control 12y5i9s million new jobs in four years, grows the economy and moves americans off of government dependency and into jobs." late night for the east coast, not so on the west coast, so little notice, there wasn't time for any news organization to take the event live. he said he was trying to offer
disconnected. if you're president of the united states, you're president of all americans. how badly does this affect the campaign, or does it not? >> talk about it on a couple of different levels. talk about the base republican level. in some ways this might help in a very small amount, might help mitt romney, poppy, with some of the base voters, with republicans who actually believe this. if you listen to what he says, he is talking about the politics of itting and the fact that the country is split. but it is also very, very, very incendiary language that he uses to make that ex-plan in addition. short term this is devastating. 24-hour news cycle is a 48-hour news cycle warren jeffs mitt romney h-- mitt romney has to answer questions is this going to have a long-term effect. we have 49 days until the election day. is this something that can be a fatal blow to his campaign? we don't know the answer to that yet. but now the romney campaign, poppy, does not want to be talking about this. >> and it's not just that issue of the 47% of americans that don't pay federal income taxes on the sur
here in the united states of america. >> reporter: now, mitt romney for his part, his campaign and republicans are saying that this is blatantly political, that this isn't coincidental, that president obama is making this announcement today as he is in ohio and he called it too little too late. as i mentioned before, suzanne, president obama is saying, you know, i have been doing things for a while, pointing back to 2009, an action that he took on tire imports from china, so trying to make the case that, no, this is something that he has steadily been doing. it is an issue that matters, and, obviously, you know, in a state like ohio and other manufacturing states, this is something that is on the mind of voters. >> briana, do we know how it's playing out in ohio? i know that there's a new poll number that is out as well. >> reporter: yeah, there are some poll numbers out. it's kind of a mixed bag because one of these polls -- and nbc news-wall street journal maris poll, and i should mention that awful these were taken after the convention show that president obama is ahead by s
